Cloud computing, whereby software, data processing, data storage and other key IT requirements are delivered as a service via the Internet, is evolving rapidly. However, whilst many organisations are becoming reliant on cloud resources, contracts for cloud services often contain provisions that are inappropriate, unenforceable and/or illegal. Similarly, the application of established data protection concepts to the storage and processing of information in cloud environments can be problematic, with fundamental uncertainties as to what is regulated, who is reponsible, which laws apply, and the circumstances in which law enforcement authorities can obtain access to information. Covering the key legal and regulatory issues surrounding cloud computing, this work provides an invaluable analysis of this evolving area of law. Topics covered include contracts, data ownership and protection, access to data, competition, and consumer protection as well as an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of governance models for cloud computing, making this the most coherent and comprehensive study of the issues surrounding cloud computing law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If you need to consult a great book on the legal implications of cloud computing, then look no further ... Professor Millard is responsible for a work which explores the principles of cloud computing law in a way that will remain relevant for some time. It's a book that the serious players will return to again and again. * Martin Hoskins *
This book is the result of ground-breaking research over the past four years by the core members of the Cloud Legal project at the Centre for Commercial Law at Queen Mary, University of London: Ian Walden, Kuan Hon, Simon Bradshaw, Chris Reed, Julia Hornle, Alan Cunnigham and of course Christopher Millard himself. In addition, one chapter is co-authored by Laise Da Correggio Luciano. ... The book is essentially a detailed, but easily accessible account about the legal implications of cloud computing. At the same time, it is a fascinating insight into why cloud computing is different from traditional outsourcing, and an enabler of new business models that are part of nearly everyone's daily life. * Laura Linkomies, International Report Privacy Laws and Business Data Protection and Privacy Information Worldwide *
